OCD's support is expanding!
Hello everyone! This is the 50th compilation post of OCD's latest curation efforts. It has been known that OCD has been supporting leading niche communities under its Community Incubation Program. However, there are still a lot of other niche communities not supported by OCD. This curation initiative will help in supporting those communities.
This newest curation effort aims to encourage authors to post in appropriate communities even if those communities are not under the incubation program. This will also encourage users to explore more into the different communities in Hive.
How this Works
OCD curators and community leaders will find posts from other niche communities and recommend them for an upvote. Unlike those communities in the incubation program where curation is focused, this curation initiative is spread out. This will help find undervalued posts from smaller communities that deserve support.
This will highlight both the author and the community where the post is located. This way, smaller niche communities can focus on growing their subscribers and increasing the engagements within their respective communities. A small boost goes a long way.
Speaking of boost, here are the curated posts for this batch:
Nging Ji'oh Park is one of the hilly areas in my city that offers a panoramic view of the beauty of the offshore and is one of the best spots to enjoy Sunrise in the morning.
This is my third spring gardening outside. I decided to get into growing some of my own edibles starting with fruits; berries mainly, and vegetables. I had been growing flowers in flower pots indoors prior to that, but I figured it wouldn't take that much more effort to grow food instead. I used to have a tiny little farm when I was very young. I grew yam, maize, leafy vegetables and tomatoes. The land was so fertile, however, so I put absolutely zero effort into it. I basically put the stuff in the ground and it grew. I still remember the pride I felt when we had my yam for breakfast after my first harvest.
As always thanking each one of you for your receptivity and hoping that you can enjoy it to the fullest, we will present you two models, of which you will select the one that attacks you the most.
I decided to take a couple of days off and spend them in the beautiful Rodopi region. Me and a Friend of mine visited 2 very nice sightseeings and I used the actifit tracker to count my steps. We booked a Airbnb place which I would like to share with you.
I grew up in a small village with my ma, pa, grandma, my single uncle, my aunt and her family. My dad had a good-paying job and I was an only child then. As the first baby in the family, all the love was poured onto me. I don't recall those times in my memory but my grandma would love to remind me every now and then. My ma, pa and I were a young family. They were still figuring out parenting stuff together and those days were messy. Good thing I had my baby cousin, who was a year younger than me. We were pretty tight and we had each other's backs like Batman and Robin. All was well and good until...
I've always been someone with a personality of "just do it" when it comes to doing what is necessary or the right thing to do. No matter what and who you see around you, it's up to you to take control of your life and do what you can to make this world a better place. My heart is heavy for the state of the world as it is today. Instead of coming together in trying times, it seems we are drifting further apart. What does that foretell for our new generation who see this and wonder why. They are looking to us for answers and how to behave in appropriate situations. Let's not disappoint.
Mint leaves are medicinal plants that have been recognized for their efficacy for a long time. It is said that the most potent benefit of mint leaves for health is to relieve headaches and abdominal pain. Although in fact, there are a lot of unexpected properties of mint leaves. For me personally smelling mint leaves alone is like a stress healing without me having to do drugs or get drunk.
The picture of being hippie organic on our homestead does not include wearing clothes until they can stand on their own. I like clean clothes - obsessively so. I like spotless laundry. I actually like sticking my nose between a pile of cloth diapers. And isn't it wonderful climbing into bed that smells like sunshine!
I am relatively new to HIve (I am about 3 months old). Once I made my first publication about my personal presentation, I started to explore different communities. I remember that International Women's Day was approaching and it seemed to me a very propitious space to approach the commemoration of this date. Then, as I studied a bit the concept presented as an opener "A community that focuses on women, their interests, joys and passions, and shares stories of their journey in life", I could not feel more identified with this space.<
Between April 23 and May 2 both my home and now my community have been rocked by several traumatic experiences that feel tragic and the process to find the light again in the darkness has not been easy. As someone who finds self-worth partially in my own strength during difficult times, finding myself crushed under the weight of these tragedies has been doubly hard to accept. While still reeling from the weight of our family's traumas that sent me on a week-long sabbatical to be able to collapse where our children would not see me in such a state (I know you parents can relate to this one!), a sudden death in our greater community hit just as I had pieced myself together enough to come home. While still feeling in shambles, I was presented with an opportunity to tap in to part of my own skill set and knowledge for a dear friend who has now been thrust front and center in the position to save and protect a child left without their rock through the death that happened.
This concludes this batch's curation report. We would like to congratulate those who are featured and supported. Keep up the good work and continue to explore Hive Communities.
